Mouse Music #9 – The Haunted Mansion

Welcome foolish mortals to episode 9 of Mouse Music, the podcast celebrating the music and history of the Walt Disney Company! Here at Sideshow HQ we don’t take our Halloween decorations down until December 1st at the earliest, so today we are finally going to talk about the greatest theme park attraction in all the land, The Haunted Mansion!

Joining ghost host Will Dodson and his macabre partner in crime Wicked Wendell Jones in the dimly lit and cobweb-strewn Sideshow Sound Studio is our lovely co-host from the west coast, resident voice actor, puppeteer and Muppet expertRachel Herrick, and making his Mouse Music debut, a very talented podcaster and good friend, Sideshow’s newest member, Terrifying Todd Horan! The team of podcasting ghosts take an objective look at one of the more divisive films in the Disney catalog, discussing their favourite moments from the 2003 Walt Disney Pictures’, ‘The Haunted Mansion‘.

Next up, in our insidious intermission, Wend and our resident Disney professor Creepy Chris Lyndon creak the crypt door open and head down to the Sideshow Vault for a spooktacular instalment of the Disney Music Archives. Chris chooses a spinechilling selection for today’s eerie episode, reminding us all of one of the top-selling Disneyland Records of all time, the 1964 bestseller, ‘Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House‘ narrated by Laura Olsher featuring sound effects compiled by Jimmy MacDonald.

Finishing on an absolute high, the ghoulish gang embark once more upon their doombuggies to chat about The Haunted Mansion! Starting with a little Disney history, they gush over their favourite section and characters in the ride, explore the differences between each iteration in the Disney parks, dive into the various renditions of ‘Grim Grinning Ghosts‘, and share their thoughts and experiences on the best attraction in history!

What did you make of The Haunted Mansion movie? We’d be so happy to hear your memories of The Haunted Mansion, as well as your thoughts on ‘Chilling, Thrilling Sounds of the Haunted House’!
